A happy bunch of ladies
Fine Jewelry With Beads
What do you have when some ladies get together to take a class they
have never attempted before?
A ton of fun!
The first class
"Fine Jewelry With Beads" at the
clubhouse of Maralago Cay was a blast for everybody who attended.
None of the students believed they could create and
complete a necklace in their first lesson - all without images of
patterns or designs.
Even better: they were surprised to find out that
they had all the best design ideas already in their minds.
So it came that each of the students enjoyed their
time amid all the heap of new information that came with the
introduction to beading.
Next week we'll advance to make a multi strand
project. Stay posted...
Stepping up: making a multi strand in
We found some hidden talent here!
Now that everybody got the hang of it already, they are
having fun creating and designing. And some of
the ladies wore last week's necklaces on their evening out. Good job,
Week III: a nice bracelet to go with just about any outfit
Just to notch
things up a bit - the eager students learned how ro do the
crosslocking technique, also widely known as "right angle weave".
See them in action in the image below and admire their
talent and patience.
Week IV: Marlene wearing her freshly
Well into their
beading experience, the students have gotten bit by the bug.
The game has changed: the ladies are now talking about
their bead buying adventures, the pictures of jewelry they saw in
magazines, and the jewelry their friends were wearing.
A whole new world has opened up!
Amazing things are happening here
The most rewarding feeling for a teacher
is, when students go home and work on a project independently. That's
exactly what happened with this group, and there is a surprise item that
someone made each week. Good job, ladies!

There were four students graduating today, so they received
their certificates along with their yellow bracelets. Congratulations for
completing the Apprentice level course!
Some new students entered the realm of beading...
couple of "Brave Ones" started working with Kumihimo discs to make nifty
bracelets. Of course they did very well, and the following week we'll dare
to add beads to the technique.
An eight warp braid is perfect to get started...
